I bought this chart above the other day, and when I got home I realized that I had already purchased this chart + embellishments before! OOPS! It's by Amy Bruecken Designs and is called 'Ho Ho Ho'. So, I decided I would have a giveaway on my blog for it. Please leave a comment here on this post if you're interested in winning this chart (including the embellishment pack). I think I will draw for the winner next weekend because fall break is coming up this next week and with the kids home from school, I'll have to wait till the following week to be able to go to the post office to mail it off to its new owner. I started stitching mine last night and will share a WIP here soon. :)

Vista and me.....are not friends. I wanted to upload all of these pictures last night and after the first two, neither DH or I could figure out how to get the rest of them uploaded. I'm sure Vista is improvement...somehow.....but not being a computer whiz, it just seems more complicated and convoluted than it should be. LOL Ok, so today it worked, yay!!
Above is my 'Pair Tree' WIP, designed by Sue Hillis. Not being one who particularly likes stitching designs with lots of color changes (think Paula Vaughan, though they are so pretty!), I am stitching this one with 4 colors of overdyed thread and white DMC, instead of using different shades of same color as called for on the chart.

'Bless Our Home' by Country Cottage Needleworks stitched on 32 count country french latte linen with crescent colours. As usual, I changed some of the colors: clay pot was changed to wild berries and peanut brittle was changed to brown sugar. I finished this one up a couple months ago.

And here's 'Snapperville' by Bent Creek! Wahoo! It's been a WIP for a long time and I *finally* finished it up this past summer. I am still searching for just the right frame molding for this one, I have a picture in my mind of what I want, let's hope it exists! Snapperville' is stitched on 32 count Birds of a Feather 'sandpiper' linen.

It's a really beautiful fall day here, DS already had his soccer game this am, and the rest of the day is free for stitching! Hope you all find time to enjoy some stitching this weekend.
